Biafra: Ekweremadu reacts to Buhari’s statement about Nnamdi Kanu

Former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has said a political solution is still being pursued concerning the case of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

The lawmaker who said this while reacting to tye recent interview by President Muhammadu Buhari, stated that the President didn’t rule out a political solution.

In an interview on Dream FM in Enugu, Ekweremadu said:

“Political solution in the Nnamdi Kanu’s matter is still very feasible. I also watched the Channels Television interview and I don’t think Mr. President ruled out a political solution. In fact, I would have been surprised if he said he would just release Nnamdi Kanu because there is independence of every arm of government, including the judiciary. There are procedures.

“I recall that it was exactly Mr President’s response when I led a delegation of the South East Caucus of the Senate to see him on the Nnamdi Kanu issue in November 2016. But ultimately we kept reaching out and dialoguing until we had a political solution, which resulted in the judiciary granting Mazi Nnamdi Kanu a bail because ultimately, everything will come to the judiciary because every arm of government is independent.

“So, we will keep working on a political solution, nevertheless. We will keep engaging the government, just as we will continue to appeal to our youth and people to ensure the stability and prosperity of our region.

“In line with the political solution, which the South East Caucus of the National Assembly is quitely pursuing, I led a delegation of some Igbo leaders like the Deputy Minority Leader of the Senate, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe; Secretary-General, Amb. Okey Emuchay; and aBishop of the Methodist Church of Nigeria and Co-Chair Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace,
Bishop Sunday Onuoha.

“As usual, I deliberately didn’t want to make it public because it is a quite service we are rendering to Ndigbo and the nation. But the DSS eventually made it public in one of their statements.

“So, to answer your question, yes, I did lead a delegation to interface with the Kanu and the authorities. We had useful conversations. We have equally made some requests and we are waiting for a feedback from the government to make progress.”
